NEW POETRY FROM ISABEL SOBRAL CAMPOS BRINGS LIFE TO THE WRECKAGE OF ENVIRONMENTAL COLLAPSE

Blue Figure Press to release second poetry collection, How to Make Words of Rubble by Isabel Sobral Campos.

As wave

or pyre

 

Oyster silks

glittering eye

deceivingly
at heels of tuff

            I become situated in the imperturbable

            tunnel opening onto sea

           

            The wind rumbles operatic

            Rage, coliseum of hurt

            Another sentence slips

            amid tones of grey
            into a stranger’s open

            mouth interloper trapped

            by straying fly

            trickling fangs

                              because the world is lost

                              I have a child who waits

 

about bfp

​for the recognition of beauty in things as they are

for the celebration of the spontaneous

for the reestablishment of the primitive heart

for the word as life

for the liberation of all beings
